Asaduddin Owaisi seeks the SC to request a stay on the CAA’s implementation.

For illegal non-Muslim migrants from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan who arrived in India before December 31, 2014, the CAA seeks to expedite the process of obtaining citizenship.

Asaduddin Owaisi, the leader of All India Majlis-E-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM), filed a motion with the Supreme Court on Saturday to halt the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), 2019’s implementation.

According to Owaisi’s appeal, while the case is pending, the government is not permitted to consider or handle any applications for the grant of citizenship status under Section 6B of the Citizenship Act, 1955 (as amended by the Citizenship (Amendment) Act, 2019).

In December 2019, the Parliament passed the CAA. Nonetheless, the Union administration released guidelines for it on Monday of this week.

The law intends to expedite the process of granting citizenship to non-Muslim refugees who arrived in India on or before December 31, 2014, due to religious persecution in Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan.Since 2019, more than two hundred related petitions have been submitted before the highest court, contesting different provisions of the CAA. On March 19, the Supreme Court will consider the applications.
